It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

There’s No Place Like Home.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

We didn’t bother to set the alarm clock this morning or we would never have gotten any sleep last night. The magic word was “Any”. Last night was just like the night before any travel day we both tossed and turned most of the night with the anticipation of hooking up and getting those wheels rolling. 

By not setting the alarm we figured that most of the morning rush hour traffic would be over with by the time we crossed the border. We were right because when we got to customs on the US side of the Ambassador Bridge we were stopped less than a minute and we were told to have a nice day. 

We actually arrived at General RV almost an hour earlier than I had said we’d be there. I had also requested looking at other trailers made by Keystone and those made by other manufactures with the same outer construction. All the rear walls had some flex to them but nothing like our trailer. We’ll be stopping at the Keystone factory when we attend the Escapade in May next year and then they’ll deal with it like it or not. We spoke with Sid for a bit before checking out the trailer to make certain everything on the work-order had been completed. We found that they had not put the second anchor screw into the outside kitchen slide which was causing the cover to bunch up. 

Since I had said we’d probably be eating lunch before heading back home so the suggested a small restaurant just a mile away. The name was Dave and Amy’s and they had quite an extensive menu that was priced very reasonably. The portions were just the right size and filled you perfectly. I enjoyed a wonderful Mexican Omelet while Kathy had two eggs with ham and toast. 

Once everything checked out, paid for and we were hooked up we were soon on our way home. Of course we made certain that we stopped at the Duty-Free at the Ambassador Bridge where we topped off the fuel tanks on the truck. Filling the tanks this way is always costly but it also saves us a lot of money by filling up in the US where we pay much less for a gallon than by filling up with the Canadian metric liter system. 

By the time we backed the trailer into its spot at the storage yard we were feeling tired but at the same time sensing a feeling of relief just to have it back home. We then headed back to the apartment and our daughter’s garage where we gathered many of the things we needed to load back into the trailer before heading south to Florida at the end of the month. It is a big relief to finally have our trailer back home. 
Finally back home.
Tomorrow is another day closer to Christmas and our next adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Who Are You on the Chessboard of Work?

Knight: these are the flashy types, usually salespeople. They close big deals and brag about them. They drive fancy cars to work and always tell you what designer suit they are wearing. Like it or not, these guys are liked by the King. But they run hot and cold. Make sure you're near them when they're hot, and you're missing when they're not. Knights rarely make good Kings.
